My name is bowl. I and my family live with Nisha.

We live in peace and harmony, until one day.

Personally, I don't like to brag, but I need you to know that I am the oldest of all. We all decided to become family because of our resemblance, and the fact that we were all of similar use to Nisha.

Since we have no father or mother, the only way we ascertain whose orders would be conclusive on a matter is by age; who joined the family first, just like in the vampire diaries, the older you are, the more power you had. Some of us have long passed away, even the young ones. I have severally advised Nisha on the kind of people she should adopt, but she never listens. All glitters that is not gold. She likes glittering things, but once they joined us, they soon passed away, because they are not able to withstand or resist the heat we pass through in the sink, the fridge, the microwave, the shelves.

Well, what divided our family finally; that everyone had to go their own way.

We were all in the sink and it was aluminium pot's birthday. A bright morning, all excited and waiting to celebrate once we made it to the dish rack. The night before, Nisha had gone shopping. Amongst other things, she got a a new bottle of liquid soap.

She had been using detergent since the last one finished, and this has been really harsh on us. Glasswares passed away during that period because they easily slipped off while passing through. It was a painful period. A lot was spent on funeral, but wastebin was at that time, happy because he had always complained of being used as a rag and humiliated often because of his dirtiness. It was the first time we were all respectful of him. We were scared of rejected by him when we passed away.

It was time for Nisha to bath us, so we get ready for aluminium pot's birthday, and she decided to finish the little detergent she had left before going for the lime colour liquid soap. Who to go first was the problem!

I mean I am a bowl. I am expensive. My adoption took a long while because of my rareness. This was the fight. I explained all these to them and they wouldn't listen.

"No", glass were argued, "i am the most expensive and delicate"!

Argument insued until aluminium pot made a point that caused dead silence and made everyone turn to me.

"What?" I asked, staring deadly at all.

"We are supposed to be stored in our when Nisha is washing, remember?"

"No no No!", I screamed as I drew my sword in anger and began to break everything that belonged to that sink. I lost it. Utensils flying up and down; it was mysterious and frightening to Nisha. So frightening that she ran off the house and never returned.

Did I regret my actions? "Yes".

"Was I lonely afterwards?" So lonely I decided to sit in the bin, until maybe I rotten away.

  • Her eyes quickly turned green. I could literally see two old women laughing in there. While I cried to go back home with Nwokedi, she made him believe that she knew exactly how to stop from crying. She deceived him with a smile that only me knew the evil behind. Though it was at age four, I can vividly remember telling Nwokedi to find me in the grave, while he waved me bye. Not up to 45 seconds, Aunty Kwili Kwili gave me a pinch that left a scar behind my...

  • That Special Man in My Life
  • "That evening, I was so mad at Kene and his silliness. We had been friends for almost three years, and for the first time, I wanted to board a public transport to his house, because I really wanted to scold him like a foolish child. I was going to confront him and I had rehearsed my lines a good number of times, and each time, new lines that soothe his silliness included themselves in my script paragraphs. It was 7 rupees for the three kilometres journey" ....that is the pipe that conserved the water of love and a divine visitation between a 75 years Indian handsome man and a 24 years African beauty queen who all her years in India, had always been disgusted by the attitude of most Indian men. The story turns upside down on meeting this man. You may like to find out what type of relationship they got into and how.

  • A Pleasure Of Sight
  • As soon as Raj came into the class smiling, they all hoped he’s got good news. He so hesitated as if he knew what they were waiting for. Then he finally announced; ‘there is no class guys, you can go home’. This is one news that makes students shout like pupils. Almost immediately, everyone got up to leave, including Jolly.

  • It was a suggestion stampede and laughter filled the room. Many funny suggestions hauled in, but they gave Blake a lot of insight. To end the get together, he introduced Asher as his girlfriend and thanked her duly for the initiative. They were all happy for him. He had succeeded to build stronger the “33 bond" again! The couple decided to start something beautiful with the mixture that left everyone wanting more, and that was the beginning of a company that would later become historic; “33 Export Lager Beer". More historically and memorable, of friendship bonds. Every year, the same time, the 33 class of 1978 came together to celebrate the Blake’s initiative of 1979!
